katrina. bill: that is remarkable. let me get to that in a moment. next we are we can expect more of these. >> that's right. every 11 years the north pole and south pole flip releasing a burst of radiation and hot plasma are shooting into outer space. one of these days one of these bullets could hit the earth. bill: what will happen then? you will lose your blackberry. >> first we'll lose fox news. teltelecommunications will be knocked out. satellites will be fried. this is an unlikely event, power stations could get shorted out. physicists have estimated property damage at the level of $2 trillion or about 20 times the damage of hurricane katrina these numbers were done by the military and by the american physical society. bill: when was the last time that happened. >> you have to go back to 1859 or so. the carryin car shall carrington event. we didn't have satellites back in the 1800s and we've only had a few cycles with the space-age to worry about. power plants have been knocked out in quebec and other cities because of solar flares that graze the earth. a direct hit, though rare could
who are very familiar with their struggle. survivors of hurricane katrina. the group of students and typers from mississippi traveled north to new jersey this week to help clean up debris and rebuild homes. it will -- they will be spendge the entire week there including the thanksgiving holiday. the volunteers say a lot of people came and helped them after hurricane katrina hit their community so they just want to return the favor. >> great story, tori. >>> 78:24. there's a new survey of berkeley high school students suggesting that fewer students are taking weapons to school or they are coming to campus under the influence of drugs and alcohol. 0% of juniors reported taking a weapon to school this year. that's down from 15%. the number of 11th graders coming to school under the influence of alcohol and marijuana, that also fell to 35% down from 55% in 2008. >>> all right. 8:24. want to check in with sal. see what's happening on 880 in oakland. >>> you know a lot of people use that to get to the airport in oakland. we also checked in with the airport parking. so far it's not comp
there. katrina. >> people need to know that we have come one step closer to ending the ineffective irrational and inhumane drug wars with the initiatives that passed in washington and colorado on november 6th. this is an opening for the president to instruct the department of justice to reprioritize the marijuana, prosecution of marijuana cases. but also to use this as a way to allow washington, colorado to implement these cases because the war on drugs disproportionately affects latino, african-americans and it's failed. >> colorado is an -- the story in colorado is fascinating. they're setting up the regulatory system. >> eli lake. people should know that the white house and the cia write the policy that was supposed to endure for drone target, china developed their own military drones that they unveiled this week as a military air show. it's not just america and israel anymore. >> inevitable. heather hole bert. >> people should know as we go back to the fiscal cliff/curve discussions, pentagon contractors, have enough money to ride them out for six months unlike military familie
katrina where it was failures on the part of the federal government's response. you don't have that negative aspect. you have chris christie, the most visible republican in the country. certainly according to the media one of the better liked ones. he's out there using his platform to vouch for the leadership of the democratic president. i think that makes a powerful statement to people. i think having bloomberg weigh in makes a pretty strong statement to people as well. and i think just -- it's tough to quantify this. i think it's impossible to quantify this. to me it creates this noise that's sort of in the air, in the media air, and sort of in the conversational air in this country. it creates noise that i think takes wavering voters who maybe were soft obama supporters or soft romney supporters, i could see it moving them, you know, a small share of people, but i could see it moving people toward obama making them more comfortable with the idea of re-electing him. if it's a 1% or something, small, but it's big in the context of this election. >> in the context of endorsemen
. this was the biggest one-week spike since september of 05 right after hurricane katrina slammed the gulf coast. gerri willis is with us. this jump, you could expect it. >> that's true. it's about the storm. people can file for unemployment claims if their employer closes their doors because of the storm. that's exactly what happened. we saw a lot of people file particularly in new york and new jersey. but even if you look at the moving averages which tends to back that out, you see the numbers moving, drifting higher. this jobs market is not recovered. not yet, not by a long shot. you can probably expect to see this weakness continue for two weeks. >> shep: that led to another -- it was a horrible day on wall street for a while, but recovered at the end. >> yesterday, 185 points down on the dow. today we ended up down 28 points. that's what's considered a good day on the markets right now. let me tell you, with that major problems, and if you look what the markets have done since the president took office, down 5%. the nasdaq, s & p, the dow, all of them. >> shep: it's his fault. obama's fault, right
. >> well, i mean, you know, we had hurricane sandy which disrupted the economy for a period. we had katrina many years ago. things will disrupt the economy. i mean, 9/11 was extraordinary case. but we have a very resilient economy. we had one for hundreds of years and the fact that they can't get along for the month of january is not going to torpedo the economy. >> buffett also told me that the president and congress need to make every attempt possible to reach a compromise and he also said that does not mean that qua yoet roll over and give away the store." again, he wants to see the president take a hard line here. the big part of these negotiate azs is taxes on the wealthy. should tax rates increase or not. we ask buffet for specifics when it comes to taxes, especially taxes on investments or capital gains taxes. here's what he told us. >> we certainly, we certainly prosperred with capital gains rates more than double what they are currently. >> we'd be fine with 30% capital gains. >> sure. >> what about income tax? >> income taxes as high as 90% during my lifetime. now, very few people
cars, hauling away boats swept into the middle of the street. but as police learned in katrina, starts are prime territory for shady operators to steal cars targeting older models that can be -- we shadowed the new york police auto crime unit, spot checking towers, making sure they're t towing the line. at night it's often easier to get away with illegal tows. >> it's pitch black out here, you can't see anything. it's very dark, they can sneak in and out neighborhoods, grab cars and leave. >> along the way we stop at this spot where tow trucks have dropped off their vehicles. see the markings here? it has to do with the loan company. this car still has water in the health. let's give it a shake so you can see it. >> there's a reason why the insurance company totalled it out. >> for now police are monitoring the lot to make sure that cars don't disappear without reason. authorities seize records of one toein toeing companies. overcharged owners to get them back. after several attempts, we were unable to reach the company for comment. we put a van on it for an suv. >> reporter: no troubl

the superstorm sandy and during katrina. when american people are asked to innovate, to conserve and car pool. >> and asked to wait in line forever and i don't know that superstorm sandy is the best example. >> one of the things that we have to think about conservation and implications and pollution and things like that. and might force that, but kevin, a lot of people don't have a choice, they have to drive. >> you know, brenda, you can't take blood from a stone. we have inflation in food, in energy and heating oil and the gasoline and everything else and everything consumer goods that we see. it's going to impact discretionary spending. and they are he going to do it willingly and we're all trying it save money, but at the end of the day it's another tax on the middle class, all this is and already, if you look, again, i've lived in eastern europe, too, and pay more for gas, but people cannot spend as much on other things, bottom line it's a tax on the middle class, it's going to affect the economy for the worse, that's it. >> final word. >> challenging things to put in front of the americ
in this country occurred when we have the debt ceiling drama. not 9/11, i think katrina was the biggest, but the second biggest in the last four years was that event in terms of consumer confidence dropping. government, i think government right now, frankly, has been part of the problem, not part of the solution. it needs to provide, and, you know, almost regardless of what it does, it needs to provide some certainty and predictable to businesses and consumers so that they will function better and we will have a more productive economy. >> okay. so, heidi, steve has provided a very nice lead-in to bringing you into the conversation, and he said, you know, look, the u.s., the strength of the u.s. domestic economy, sorting out the fiscal situation is important not just for the u.s. and the world economy, but for the u.s. and the world full stop. >> right. >> you work at the state d., -- department, but you're the chief economist. what do you do? >> now they're laughing at her.

of hurricane katrina. that's trouble for roughly 100% of re-elected presidents since 1972. yes, it's enough to give you second thoughts about that second term. so is there anything the obama team can do to prevent this? now, as bill clinton might say. >> it depends upon what the meaning of the word "is" is. >> reporter: the fact is, if there is going to be a second-term scandal, its seeds were probably sewn in the first term. the watergate break-in, nixon's first term. the actual iran contra deal, reagan's first term. bill clinton's liaison with lewinsky, first term. the actual plame leaks, first term. so if the obama team was going to mess up, history suggests, they already did. maybe it's something that has made headlines already, but maybe not. remember, the lewinsky scandal didn't surface until 1998. maybe the obama administration will make its own history and avoid a second-term scandal. but if not, disney world may seem very appealing. you know, it was interesting, in the president's news conference, he said he was well aware of the history of presidential overreach in second terms. t
part of three states. >> we all remember, you know, after hurricane katrina, the fema trailers. do you think fema is doing a better job this time around, and it's just, as you said, because of the normality of the situation that there may be some criticism of the job that fema is doing? >> it's not my job -- my job is to think we always need to do more. and that's what i'm focused on. i think there's some things that have gone incredibly well. for example, the dewatering of the tunnels and the subways. over 475 million gallons of water were removed. i don't think anybody predicted it would be done this fast, given the sheer scale of it. the fema assistance that we've gotten on the ground, we have over half a billion dollars in the hands of survivors. and new york alone. but that's not enough. we know we've got to do more. there's a huge challenge for housing, because of the -- just the lack of available rental and hotel space. >> yeah. mr. burn, our deborah ferric talked to residents on staten island on thursday. let's listen. >> no government agency has shown up here to do anything to
, swiss re actually warned us of an east coast storm like sandy in 2006. after hurricane katrina, swiss re's head of catastrophe perils, andy castaldi, worried aloud about warming seas and more violent storms in the gulf. but, he told me: >> i'm also concerned about the new york bay and long island would be inundated by a flood, due to a category 3 storm. a storm surge could completely flood the airport at jfk. 13 feet of sea water is not out of or to 17 feet is not out of the question. >> reporter: so the blue is sandy's storm surge. we interviewed castaldi again last week, after sandy. >> that's the footprint of the storm surge that was produced by the superstorm sandy, as you can see in the center of the screen is john f. kennedy airport. now i'm going to toggle back to the coastal flood map that we had prior to the storm and you can see just about the same areas as the sandy footprint we knew was exposed to a storm surge. >> reporter: six years ago, you said that you thought that climate change was a major factor in recent storm activity. do you think that more today? >> i can't really
in the two hardest hit states. sandy was in some ways worse than hurricane katrina, citing the high economic cost and property destruction. meanwhile, a top executive and a trustee for the power company have resigned in the wake of the company's slow response in getting power back to new yorkers on long island. >>> here's a look at some of the other stories topping the news right now. a fast-moving storm system sweeping through the mid-atlantic this morning bringing a wet mixture of rain and snow. the storm is expected to put down 1 to 3 inches of snow from west virginia to new york. >>> early numbers suggest that cyber monday raked in big numbers. according to ibm, online sales jumped 30% over last year, sales on ebay and amazon.com were very strong. >>> kevin clash is now being accused of a third sexual relationship with an underage boy. the latest accuser claims he was 16 when he met him. a spokesman for clash denies these new allegations. >>> halle berry's ex-boyfriend has released pictures from his thanksgiving day brawl with berry's fiancee. he claims martinez tried to kill him and is
for his handling of the recovery in the wake of hurricane katrina. so you have the republican governors getting things done and providing a model of how they can transition. >> on the map right now california is reading blue in terms of the gubernatorial leading, but california, for instance, has had a whole series of republican governors. we have pennsylvania. we have new jersey, as you just mentioned. are all of these republican governors successful for very different reasons? >>. >> there's a whole swath of policy interests. and another thing that you can look at with the republican gubernatorial is diversity. you have hispanic governors in nevada. they won election of 2010. susanna martinez who got rave reviews for the convention speech at the the republican national convention. you see the republican wing in congress being very, very white. a lot of males dominating the caucus. on the governor's side you have a lot of hispanic and indiana-american governor es showing the way. >> you make the point that four of the five women serving as governors in 2013 are republicans. you look at
katrina. 250,000 pets were left stranded. how big a problem was it following super storm sandy? >> basically they wrote the book on katrina and it shows that people will not leave their pets behind. after the horror stories you have, here we have it right here on long island in the new york metropolitan area. we have set up shelters. we had three pet friendly shelters going for approximately 11 days in suffolk county. >> obviously those have been shut down, but you still are offering a to pets and families who have pets, tell me some of the things you're doing. folks are listening to this, they need some money. they need help on this. explain what you're doing. >> we're going into the hardest hit areas and distributing pet food to people that need -- what people don't realize is people don't have cars anymore. people can't drive. people have lost everything. so we are going into these areas and going door to door and distributing it for them. and whatever we can do to help out with their pets and family members. from past experience, what we found is people refuse to leave when
-- well, except look at the price tag of repairing things after stuff. look at katrina and now sandy. you know, sandy wasn't especially a big hurricane, as hurricanes go. it just happened to get deflected ashore in an inopportune place, and from a geological standpoint, you know, katrina was 2005. sandy is 2012. in a sense of deep time, that's like the blink of an eye. it's just happened like that. if these storms happen every five years, then every four years, this is going to be very expensive and traumatic thing, and that's just in the developed world where we have the means to feed 50,000 people on thanksgiving day, but in developing worlds, it leads to just horrible trauma, and we have huge inefficient sis, and there's going to be conflict over transportation and clean water and who gets the rights to live in the right -- in the most desirable places. this could be a turning point. i am an advocate of doing everything all at once. >> so to both of you as we wrap it up, real quick then, do you believe, the both of you, we're going to see more, larger, begger, more frequent storms as a
superstorm sandy could cause more than -- could cost more than hurricane katrina. andrew cuomo says the superstorm will cost $42 billion. new york like other states appealing for federal aid. 110 people died in the region during the storm. nearly 1,800 lost their lives in hurricane katrina. >>> in the heart of sydney, australia, the arm of a construction crane falls on to a building, barely missing busy broadway street. the collapse happened after a fire involved the cab of the crane. just two weeks ago the construction site was shut down when workers walked off the job because of a gas leak. >>> technology and the law colliding, especially when it comes to cell phone use. it's a bad between your right to privacy and a lawful search of your cell phone. in rhode island, for example, a judge threw out cell phone evidence two months ago in the case of a man charged with killing a 6-year-old boy. in louisiana, a federal appeals court is reviewing how to handle location records stored on cell phones. on thursday, a senate committee will consider making changes to a 1986 law on electronic
